Proverbs 101 – Busting Through Limiting Beliefs One Proverb At A Time

Do proverbs help you or hinder you? Do these generally accepted truths move your life forward or end up holding you back?

At a conscious level, you already know that your inner guidance is available to you at all times. At a subconscious level though, there may be other thoughts and beliefs at work. These thoughts and beliefs come to us through other people and society in general.

These beliefs can also have been formed in a past lifetime and carried over to this lifetime. These are the thoughts that we consciously reject, but subconsciously still buy into them.

These beliefs can keep us from hearing our inner guidance and keep you from taking action aligned with your soul’s highest path and purpose.

Often, these generally accepted “truths” are expressed as proverbs and keep you from changing careers, starting a side business, or moving to where your soul calls you.

What Is A Proverb?

A proverb is a saying that shares a general truth about our lives, society, or behavior. It can be a phrase with some type of historical significance or a general truth that stood the test of time.
Proverbs are short common sense sayings capturing the essence of a larger complex topic. We have heard proverbs our entire lives, some within the teachings of various religions and others from family and friends. Using a proverb is a way to express commonly accepted beliefs.
